Benfica – Conveyor Belt to the Stars | Ep14: One final push – Season 5 Review | Football Manager 2019 Stories

Hello and welcome back to the final episode of this challenge, the challenge to win the Champions League with a team of only U21 players. In the first four seasons our Benfica team have managed to reach the quarter-final twice, but it had never felt particularly close to us lifting the trophy.

“And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain”

Therefore I’ll jump from the last post’s 3rd season review into the 4th season review, which I’ll try to keep as short as possible. Let’s fast forward! Continue reading

Benfica – Conveyor Belt to the Stars | Ep11: Season 3 review | Football Manager 2019 Stories

Introduction/expectations

I try to keep these season review posts pretty short, focusing on our ultimate goal of winning the Champions League and then briefly go through the rest of the results. I gave us a 10% chance of winning the Champions League ahead of this season, which reflected my feeling that we both lacked the depth and quality to become serious title contenders. Continue reading
